Blogger: Eric, I started this site out of my parents site for two reasons. To get laid. And to make a little money neither of which are coming true.

It also reinforces my belief that audiences are more media savvy than ever before. They are more suspicious about bias and understand that while objectivity may be a goal, it is never fully attainable.
